It looks like Rochester is in the record books. Thousands of people came out to Highland Park on the first day of the Lilac Festival, trying to create the world's largest human flower.

Lilac Festival organizers say the previous record was broken in England on May 2 with 2,250 people. But Friday, 2,297 people turned out for this attempt.
